Galileo Project: scientists to search for signs of extraterrestrial technology

Posted by in category: alien life

A team of scientists will embark on a new international research project led by Harvard University to search for evidence of extraterrestrial life by looking for advanced technology it may leave behind.

The Galileo Project is led by the Harvard astronomy professor Avi Loeb co-founded the project with Frank Laukien, CEO of Bruker Corporation, a Massachusetts-based manufacturer of scientific equipment.

‘Galileo Project’ will search for evidence of extraterrestrial life from the technology it leaves behind

Posted by in category: alien life

The search for extraterrestrial technology is “daring to look through new telescopes.”


Avi Loeb is heading a new project which will search for extraterrestrial technological signatures that could prove there is life beyond Earth.

Stanford Device Enables Thousands of Synthetic DNA Enzyme Experiments To Run Simultaneously

Posted by in categories: alien life, chemistry, computing, physics

A new tool that enables thousands of tiny experiments to run simultaneously on a single polymer chip will let scientists study enzymes faster and more comprehensively than ever before.

For much of human history, animals and plants were perceived to follow a different set of rules than rest of the universe. In the 18th and 19th centuries, this culminated in a belief that living organisms were infused by a non-physical energy or “life force” that allowed them to perform remarkable transformations that couldn’t be explained by conventional chemistry or physics alone.

Scientists now understand that these transformations are powered by enzymes – protein molecules comprised of chains of amino acids that act to speed up, or catalyze, the conversion of one kind of molecule (substrates) into another (products). In so doing, they enable reactions such as digestion and fermentation – and all of the chemical events that happen in every one of our cells – that, left alone, would happen extraordinarily slowly.

What will happen after Earth is destroyed by the Sun? A possibility for new life

Posted by in category: alien life

As long as a white dwarf star is alive, life will likely not survive.


New research sheds light on the possibility of life emerging on planets orbiting white dwarf stars.

Kepler Seems to Have Detected a Bunch of Rogue Planets Drifting Through The Galaxy

Posted by in category: alien life

When a star is born, the leftover dust and gas in the cloud from which it formed doesn’t just sit there. It clumps together, forming other cosmic objects — asteroids and comets and meteors and, yes, exoplanets. We’ve detected many of these exoplanets in orbit around alien stars in the Milky Way.

But not all exoplanets stay put. Some get gravitationally kicked away from their parent star, to wander the galaxy, cold and alone. These are less easy to detect — but, after careful combing through data from NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler space telescope, astronomers think they’ve found some.
